The oPTI bottle technology enables white or silvery colored bottles to be made without additives which can limit package recycling. Containers also have a unique surface feel and provide tactile “traction.” This process also blow molds details more prominently which enables decorations, such as embossed logos, to stand out better. In addition to white or silver, blue, green and pastel colors can be used. Containers can be made from slightly translucent to opaque. Because the foam process adds stiffness, lightweighting of up to 5% is possible. The technology can produce bottles with up to 95% reduction in transmitted light.
